Description: Ecomadera works with local families to grow balsa for the creation of balsa block. Largely, this product is sent to manufacturers all over the world to be used in wind turbine blades. New nursery practices are constantly being developed for a higher quality product.
Environmental Statement: Working with balsa has generated over 60 full time jobs for the community of Cristóbal Colón in Ecuador. Plantations are always developed on previously degraded land, in collaboration with local families. In addition to providing materials for green energy, balsa trees are extremely renewable as they have very short harvest periods.
